MY DAD IS A SAUSAGE
Pol leaves his boring but secure job at the bank to finally fulfill his dream and become an actor, but this decision doesn’t meet the approval of his family. And while no one is sure if it’s a burn out or a midlife crisis, Pol’s youngest daughter Zoe is his support on the path he has taken. She is the only one who supports him and the only one who believes that he has an acting talent inside of him that still needs to be discovered.
Although at first everything seemed like a ridiculous plan, doomed to failure, it ends with a fun, exciting and touching journey for the whole family.
